NEF Block Kids

The Construction Industry faces a workforce shortage that poses a serious problem for our national economy. In order to meet the demand for construction, the industry needs to attract, educate and train about 240,000 newcomers annually. 


The award-winning Block Kids Program introduces children to the construction industry in an effort to create an awareness of and to promote an interest in future careers in one of the many facets of the industry. Sponsors include NAWIC Chapters and other organizations. 


The Block Kids Building Program is a national building competition which is sponsored by NAWIC Chapters and other organizations that wish to promote children in grades K-12 about construction careers. The program is non-discriminatory and as such is open to all elementary school children in grades Kindergarten (K) through sixth (6). All eligible children must participate through a recognized Sponsor. 


The History of Block Kids

Erma Lamousin, member of the Gr. Mississippi Gulf Coast NAWIC Chapter, initiated the first contest held in Biloxi.

Erma shared the idea with president-elect Carol Ericson of the Connecticut/New York Line chapter who enlisted Susan Levy, past NAWIC president, to write guidelines. Carol then recruited NAWIC President Judy Short of the Cincinnati Ohio chapter to assist the contest kickoff with a special presentation at the 1989 NAWIC Convention in Seattle, WA.

Erma’s granddaughter, Natalie Smith, designed the NAWIC Bock Kids who were then named in a special contest “Connie Struction” and “Bill Dit".


The NAWIC Milwaukee Chapter hosts this event in the first quarter of the year.
